Walk with Faith, to see the Hope

” Simon Peter answered him, Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of Eternal Life”

Jn 6:68

With these words within the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, some may not truly understand, so they will turn away and give up on following Jesus Christ. This quote from the Gospel, couldn’t be truer of the way we are within this society. We all in one way or another, have walked away from something, we give up on working through something because it is the easy way out. Take marriages for instance, gone are the days of 40+ years together, only because, nobody wants to work together to get thru the tough times, so we think the grass will be greener with another at our side? In some cases, the marriage gets off on the wrong foot, as some will become someone they are not just to land what they say is the ” big catch”? If your basing a marriage on this philosophy, then you will be doomed from the very beginning. When you are not true to who you are at the beginning, then how do you expect for anyone to truly know the real you? Life is not about portraying some fake portion, or maybe someone that you yourself does not even know, because when you do this, then you are dividing yourself, from all others around you.

Then as we walk our paths of this journey, there will be many life events that will come to us, yes these events will control us if we let them. Some of these events will be brought on by ourselves and our actions, as other events will come from those around us. No matter how the event may come, when the going gets rough, we walk away to try to escape it, instead of facing it head on and working through our troubles, which will actually make us better and stronger moving forward. Jesus talks about his body and blood to his followers, he then passes around a bread loaf for each to rip off a piece, for his last supper, then passes around the red wine as his blood, for all to drink. When we eat this bread and drink this wine, we are acknowleding Jesus within our hearts and souls, as he then gives us eternal life within the world of his peace. It is when we do not keep to this faith, that any hope for our future, diminishes from our paths. Right now within this society, too many have lost this faith, as we see all the chaos and ugliness around us. Many have walked away from Jesus Christ, as they think they can do better as they walk this journey through life? Some may go to the house of the Lord on Sunday’s, then as they leave after service, will forget what was said and return to their own ways? But will say they believe? To truly believe in Jesus Christ, is believing with your mind, body and soul, listening to the words in the Gospel and implementing them within your current life, not forgeting what was said, then trying to move forward with your own version? Jesus was not about taking over the world, or killing others, this is totally on we the people, and with all the ugliness around us, we can clearly see, just how many have walked away and gave up on Jesus, taking the easy way out, instead of staying in the fight and working through the hard times, so we than can be within the peace and love of Jesus Christ.

To some within this society, it is all about me, me, me, they think that Jesus never exsisted and no matter right or wrong, their way is the only way? This is exactly the kind of attitude that is affecting us all as we walk our paths of this journey. With this attitude or Ideaology, we are on a path of division and destruction, unless we change our ways and attitudes, then one day there will be nothing left for further societies to come. We are our own worst enemy, we will walk away from anything that gives us troubles and find the easy way, as we have become too lazy, to work for anything that is worth it for our future. Yes, there are some that will try to push their ways on to us, they will Bully us into taking our control away from us, so they can only seem as powerful as they are? Those who are being Bullied, then walk away, instead of standing up to the Bully, because at the time it seems like the easy way out, but in reality, we are furthering the agenda of the Bully. We all have been bullied at some point along our paths, it is how we deal with these times and not walk away, that determines of how we move forward, better and stronger throughout this journey we walk.

Walking away from anything at the time, may seem like the best thing? But in reality, we are hurting ourselves and those around us. We have walked away from too many of our troubles in the past, only if we have stayed and fought harder to overcome the troubles, then maybe our futures wouldn’t be so bleak? With all the division and the destruction around us today, goes to show just how many have walked away, to take what they thought was the easy way out? Jesus walked through this journey, not to show us this division and destruction, this is on each of us within this society, Jesus walked this journey, to show us love, compassion for each other, how to get through the troubling times, to get through the storms, so we can get to the other side, the side of the light of the path of righteousness, as he brings us into his peace and joy, of the eternal world. This journey of life does not revolve around any certain one of us, it revolves around us all, and when we truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, when we truly have the faith in Jesus Christ, we then will see the hope right in front of us, as we keep moving forward along our paths, we also will be more able to walk through any storm and get to the other side, the side of the light along the path of righteousness, that is the path Jesus showed us to get to, for the eternal life, of the world of peace and happiness always.

When those troubling times come to you, when the darkness takes away all the light, this is when we need to be at our strongest, this is when we need to stand up and fight the good fight, keep the true faith in Jesus Christ as he will help guide us, as we dig down deep within, to not just walk through the storm, but walk through with faith, that the true hope will always be there on the other side, so we than can be within the peace and joy of Jesus Christ. This journey isn’t about walking away and taking the easy route, but when we fight the good fight and overcome our troubles, then this journey will become easy for us all, as now through the faith in Jesus and ourselves, the peace and joy is right in front of us along with the hope, which then dismisses all the division and the ugliness that may be around us. Satan is the one who will place the bumps along our paths, to trip us up away from Jesus Christ, he will bring to us many temptations, that will bring nothing but darkness to us all. This is why we need to keep the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so we can have the true hope before us, and not the false hope of, all the divisiion and ugliness that Satan will give us, when we give in to his temptations. The decision is ours to make, we can either feel the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, or we can let our hearts become cold, within the world of Satan, full of division and destruction. When we truly follow Jesus as he guides us onto the path of righteousness, we will be within the eternal life of his peace and joy, but when we chose Satan, we then will be within all the division and ugliness, which then brings much pain and hurt to us all. With the true faith in Jesus and ourselves, we then can walk through the dark times, to get into the light of salvation and eternity, which then will bring to us, the peace and joy of Jesus Christ.

So the easy way out and to just walk away from your troubles, may seem like the best way? The grass is never greenest on the other side, as we need to work through our troubles, so we than can truly see the real green grass on the other side, as we become better and stronger moving forward. This is what Jesus taught us as he walked this journey with us, this is how we evolve with strength and how we move forward instead of backwards further into the darkness. We can walk away from everything that may be in front of us, but if we do not fight the good fight, we will never learn the true meaning of what Jesus taught us during his time with us. So as the Priest talks of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, he really means that, don’t just eat the bread and use the wine to chase it down, let the bread melt in your mouth, then let the blood of Christ bring it throughout your body, as you acknowledge Jesus is within you, then you can feel the true warmth of his love within your heart and soul, so with the true faith of Jesus and of yourself, now you can walk through any darkness, to get to the light of the hope in front of you, that will bring you to the eternal life of peace and joy always.

” The easy way is to never walk away and give up, to get through the troubles we must fight the good fight so this journey then becomes easy for us all”

” To walk away from the troubles we may think is easy, but we are just extending all the division and ugliness further along our paths”

” When the troubles come to us, this is Satan trying to tempt us into the darkness, we need to stand strong against him, so the darkness will give way to the light of salvation and the eternal life of Jesus Christ, for true faith and hope into his peace”

Face all Fears with confidence through the Love

” Perfect love cast out fear”

John 4:18

” It is only the fear of God that can deliver us from the fear of man”

The only Cleric to sign the Declaration of Independence

John Witherspoon

Emotions may come and go, but we must never let them mislead us along the paths we walk. Feelings also may come and go, but the commitment will always stay, the commitment will keep us true to Jesus Christ, as well as having true faith, even at our most vulnerable times, and will keep away negative emotions like, doubt and fear. Jesus Christ chose the cross, forever committing himself to us, So let’s chose, on the front end, to be equally committed to him, no matter what trials or tragedies may come.

Fear will come to each of us at very different times, it will take full control as well. There are many different fears we will face, but none of them, with the true faith and commitment to Jesus Christ, that we can not conquor. A fear of anything is mostly of the unknown, and not truly knowing of what may be next to come, as we move forward through the fear. You climb a mountain and at the summit you are within the clouds of a storm, there is lightening all around you, and your hair on your head is standing straight up, from all the electric energy around you? This is a fear of not knowing where thr next lightening strike will be, and hopefully not a direct hit on the top of your head? You gain confidence with these types of fears, simply by knowing the right thing to do and taking shelter in a spot away from anywhere, that will reduce the chances of that direct hit.

Fear will also come from any unknown, like for instance, camping off the grid, in an area with no service, no runing water, no utilities, where you rely on a propane lantern or a campire to see at night. You are surrounded by thick forest and the night sky makes for a tough view at night, plus not knowing what is within the forest and fearing what may slip out of the forest, as it has you on alert, for every little sound or crackling of branches, within the thick forest. This type of camping will have you take the action of being prepared, while you are deep within mother nature, but with the true commitment in Jesus Christ and the faith in him, will give you all the hope for a safe time, to be had. Fear of the unknown is the biggest fear that will come to us all, and it will change you in many different ways, but if we handle this fear correctly, always keeping the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, then there will be no fear we can not get through. Fear will bring the dark clouds of doubt over our heads, as they will not last and the light will be over us soon enough, with the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ.

Through the fear of God, is the hope we will have to get through all the other fears we have. God is the one that can get us out of the darkness and into the light, but sometimes we fear God for the wrong reseasons, we let the other fears control us so much, that now we do not focus on what is real, then try to move forward in our own little made up realities, to try to escape into the fake world and try to be safe along our paths. Fear will have us bury our true selves deep within, as now we portray this fake self, so others around us will see us as okay? Once we are in this fake world, it becomes harder to escape that and get back to reality, cause now we have become conditioned with a fake feeling of security. This is when we need to truly keep the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, as he will guide us out of the darkness of the fear and into the light of God, so we all can walk our paths in peace, within the true joy of this journey.

We only fear God because, we have become conditioned from the darkness of the other fears and have lost the faith and the commitment of Jesus Christ. So many of us have walked away from the house of God, which is what leads us down this path of other fears around us. This leads us to the paths of many temptations, which will bring us these fears, and now without the visit into the house of God, we then try to walk through the darkness on our own, with no other around, to help us in the time of need. Just by looking into the deep forest, you may never see any other type of wildlife, but there are many types that live deep inside the forest, and when not prepared, it will make for a difficult time ahead. You learn with the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, just how to move forward with each step, to overcome those fears, as now you can walk through the darkness of the forest and get back to the light of your camp, get back to familiar area and the comfort it brings, so you can step out of the darkness, as the light from the moon and the stars, light up the night sky, as you sit by the campfire and see all the true beauty all around you.

” Fear is within us all, it will take full control as well, it will bring us many temptations, and deeper into the unknown of the fear”

“When the darkness of the fear takes hold of us, it is the faith and commitment of Jesus Christ, that helps us out of the darkness and into the light of salvation”

The Miracles of life will always be there within us

” So he went in and said to them, ” Why this commotion and weeping”? The child is not dead but asleep”

Mk 5:39

It is said that everything happens for a reason? It is just that we lost our way to finding that reason, so we can move forward, better and stronger along this journey through life. We all go through many events throughout this journey, that will alter the way we walk our paths, With the disruption of these events, we then get lost in the reasons, while we also lose the faith in ourselves, as well as the faith in Jesus Christ. This journey will throw many curve balls at us, it will also test us in many ways as well, but when we stay true to who we are, keep the faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, there will be no curveball, that we can not hit and make it on base safely, on the playing field of this journey through life.

With the last couple of years we all have gone through, may this be a sign from Jesus to us all, showing all of us that, he is here for us all, he will guide us back to the light of the path of righteousness, all we need to do is, keep the faith in ourselves and in him, so we then can walk through the dark clouds of the storm, to get into the bright lights of God, as we all move forward into the peace and serenity, that the path of righteousness holds for us all.

One of the biggest miracles of this journey is, we all take so for granted that each day we wake to a new day. Just like the sun rises to a new day over the horizon, we rise to the light of a new day. such a peaceful picture this is, of the sun rising to shine on a new day, the quietness of the crack of dawn, only to be interrupted by the beautiful sounds of the birds, singing their morning tunes. As everything wakes to the new light, so do we wake, only we take it for granted, simply because we have to get ready for the day within our jobs. Now some may be within their dream job? Do they really exist? Or do we just lie to ourselves to make it seem like a dream? Nonetheless, we still wake so we can earn the living, which helps us walk our paths, as peacefully as we can. Everything happens for a reason, it is on us to find that reason, so we can fix what we need to fix, stay true to who we are, then keep moving forward along our paths, of this journey through life.

The Eagle sits atop the tree and keeps an eye on all that is below. Jesus also watches all of us from high above and at the right side of his father. He sends us the needed signs, just that when we lose the faith in him, we never truly see these signs. Jesus is always watching us, his blood as it warms our souls runs through our hearts with his love, when we stay true to our feelings, we will feel his warmth and love within us, as we then will, share this love with each other. But as we lose all faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, now our hearts turn cold, and we bury our true selves so deep within, that we now become someone for who we truly are not. This is when Satan shows up and tempts us with many temptations, that bring much ugliness, pain, and hurt to us all. There will always be good and evil, only if we stay true to who we are, we will know that good will always win over evil. But when we are someone who we are not, then the dark clouds of the storm will never leave us, as the light of the new day becomes even further from us.

Sometimes as we walk our paths of this journey, things will happen that we can’t explain? These are the miracles that Jesus puts forth in front of us, these are the signs he sends us, so we can, with the faith in him, see the signs, as we keep moving forward along our paths. Miracles do happen, just that through the ugliness of Satan, we never see them as we should. Jesus Christ trusts us in so many ways, we also need to trust him in the same ways, but when those life events come to us, scorn us in the wrong ways, this is when we hide deep within ourselves and portray a fake self to all those around, as we try to minimize the pain and the hurt that will come to us. There is so much to this journey of life, there is so much that will come to us, that we then become lost as we walk our paths. When we become lost, we then trip on the bumps of the path, sometimes these bumps will knock us down, but if we do not get up in the correct way, we then do not walk our paths the same way, as we once did.

In the eyes of Jesus Christ, there really is no right or wrong way to walk this journey, we just need to stay true to who we are, stay true to the faith in ourselves, as well as the faith in Jesus also, so he then can send us those signs for us to see, he can give us those miracles that help guide us to the light of the path of righteousness, so as the bright light of the sun lights up the horizon each and every day, we to can wake up to the bright light of a new day, as we keep moving forward with the warmth of the blood of Jesus flowing through our hearts, his love warming our souls, as we then share that love with each other. May we all truly see and feel the miracles that Jesus puts forth along our paths, so we all can walk through this journey, in the peace and happiness, that Jesus wants for us all.

” The miracles of Jesus Christ are all around and with the true faith we can feel these miracles as we stay true to who we are”

” As the sun wakes up over the horizon and brings the light of a new day, The faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ will wake us up to a new day always”

Within the Kingdom of God, Jesus cultivates us all

” To what shall we compare the Kingdom of God? It is like a Mustard seed…once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants”

MK 4:30a, 31a, 32

The Kingdom of God is far and wide, It holds so much within it, that we would never see it all, even if we went out and explored every day throughout this journey of life. Then you have Mother Nature within this Kingdom, even when you get out and explore one area, as mother nature then changes it with even more beauty for us to see. The Kingdom of God is so vast, but yet, we take so for granted just how vast it truly is. God created all this around us, not so we can attack one another, not so we can take it all for granted, he did so, for us all to come together in unity, to walk through this journey, in the peace and joy, his son Jesus showed us when he came and walked his path here with us on this journey.

This bird flying freely within the Kingdom of God, without a care or a worry with each flap of the wings, simply taking in all the true beauty of what is God’s Country, this is what God had in mind for all of us, until we the people started getting away, for what this journey truly is all about. The trees within this picture started as a seed, then mother nature became the Farmer and sown these trees into a beautiful part of all the beauty we see around us. Look deeply into the horizon of this picture, take in mind that throughout all these mountains, there is plenty of wildlife that lives within them. That’s the problem in this society, if we can not see something, we then lose all belief in anything else out there, which explains why so many have walked away from the house of the Lord today. When you truly look deeply into that horizon, then you will totally see everything and not just a picture of a landscape.

A Farmer is one who cultivates the land, throughout the many societies the Farmer’s job has always stayed the same, to take care of the land, so they can bring the fruits of their labor to us all. Throughout time, the tools for the Farmer have changed, just like mother nature has changed the landscape throughout God’s country, to bring even more beauty to us all. There are many trades within this journey, with all the trades, there are also many tools for each trade. Now, these tools will be very different from one another, as they are specific to the job they were designed for. Very true all these tools have changed over time, only because they are designed to make our jobs easier, so we can enjoy the fruits of our labor, as we walk our paths to be better and stronger moving forward.

In many ways we the people of this society have failed each other throughout this journey, we have stopped short of coming together in unity, as we attack one another, we have stopped looking deeply within what we see, and totally judge one another from a glance, without truly knowing each other deeply. We say we want to get out within mother nature, then we leave a big mess in our wake, we do not clean up properly as we walk the trails of nature, yes mother nature will cultivate this land and keep it beautiful, but when we the people leave our trash, instead of disposing of it properly, eventually there will be no more beauty for any of us to see.

God was the first farmer as he created all this for us all to enjoy, then came the farmer to cultivate the land, bringing much fruit to us all, but mother nature has always been there to cultivate the landscape that God brought us. We the people and when we stay true to who we are, with the faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, can and will bring much hope to each other, but with our actions toward each other, the hope has become lost, while the faith has become buried deep within us, as we have become so divided, that we can not even say a simple hello to our neighbors anymore. This journey through life is so much better when we come together in unity, it is this division that will bring to us, all the hatred, ugliness, and chaos that we see today. We the people started all this ugliness, we the people can end it as well, if only we come together in unity, come together within the house of the Lord, so we can truly see deeply of what we see within the horizon, of the true landscape that God created for us all. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with unity we can overcome anything we set out to do, as we walk within the peace and joy that Jesus taught us, at the time of his journey here with us.

” God gave us the farmer to help mother nature cultivate and sow the seeds, for all the fruits of this land”

” The birds fly through the skies with ease as they glide into the horizon of life, so we can look deeply into that horizon to truly see all its beauty”

Material things

” What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul”

Mark 8:36

” The Bible says, is not with money itself, but with our love of money”, ” The love of money is a root of all kinds of Evil”

1 Timothy 6:10

We of this society have become so consumed with money and of material things, that we have lost total sight of were we are truly going along this journey of life. Through our need of money, it has turned us into someone that, not even we ourselves know truly of who we are and even as we look into any mirror. The greed of everything around us, has us look at everything with the eyes of, how much does that cost? The real true beauty around has no price and is priceless when we view them from the right angle, most of the time if something has no price and cost us nothing, then because of our need of money, we then look at that item as worthless and not worth it? Then we move past that item and forget about whatever it is.

When Jesus came to us and walked his path of this journey, he did so with the clothes on his back, and looked like what we see in any city, a homeless man. Today when we see anyone living out in the streets, we look away as if they have some kind of crazy and very infectious disease? Now true some may have made that choice to live that way, but most did not, as they were forced onto the streets, not just of bad times, but for reasons that greed had taken everything from them. Because of greed, we essentially have put a price on all our lives as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Look at the Leaders of some of the other countries today, with them it is all about, power, control and greed. They value more of what can you do for me, instead of what can I do for you, greed is the root of everything Evil and if you follow the money, then you as well will be led to a path of destruction sooner or later. I get the fact we all want to be comfortable, but really just how comfortable can you be, when there is a hefty price tag, on everything you do, say, or even buy. Greed has become so powerful to all of us, gone are the days of a simple thing like Bartering, now most in this society have no clue what Bartering is because of greed, it is quite simple, when you exchange something with another for a service, with no monies exchanging hands, well then you have done the simple act of bartering, not too mention the fact that, now you have done something even greater like, you have now created a trust and a bond with another, that can and will last a lifetime.

We have fallen so deep within the bubble of greed, that now we will purchase all the material things, just so we will look more powerful than those around us, we will purchase land to build a home on, without thinking of the lives that will get disrupted, when the land gets cleared? But what we never think of when we purchase that land is, all the wildlife in that area now has to relocate. Through greed all of our judgments are thickly settled with clouds, as now we can not think clearly anymore, Plus through greed, we now only think of ourselves, with zero empathy or remorse for anything, or anyone that may be around us.

When you add in the technology like we have today, to the equation of greed, now everything has multiplied even greater, don’t get me wrong, technology can and will help us, but in a lot of ways it has hurt us to the point that, we have taken huge steps backwards instead of moving forward. For instance all th social media platforms today, when they were created they were very good and actually kept us communicating with those a far, but!!! Now we the people have turned even these platforms into our worst nightmares, and you think the creator’s of these platforms really care? They have not lost a nights sleep over it, even more, they are laughing all the way to the bank, over all our anger issues and attacks we make on their platforms.

This society is in need of a major fix, we the people have put ourselves into this, we the people need to wake up to reality, and pull ourselves out of the huge hole we dug, from the appetite of trying to achieve all the power, control and greed of each other. Jesus showed us how to walk our paths of this journey, so we can get to that path of righteousness, but with our actions within this society, is this really the way we thank him? Jesus is within all our souls and his blood warms our hearts as it flows freely throughout our bodies, but when we do not acknowledge him, then our hearts and souls become so cold, we lose all empathy for everything and everyone around us, which then lets all the greed take ahold of us and control every fiber of our being. It is never to late to fix this, Jesus will always be there for us, but only when we truly feel his love within us, truly have complete faith in him, so we than can move forward with hope, so that we can fix what is wrong, then get back to walking our paths in peace, and move forward on this journey with the joy for everything around us.

” The darkness will only last as long as we let it, then the true light will brighten our paths of this journey”

” The trees will lose their leaves in the fall and may look bare, then in the spring new life prevails with fresh leaves on all the trees”

” God created all this beauty for us all to come together, not to separate and destroy everything around us”

This Journey

” Here we spend our time, and what we see”

” What we think about matter”

Psalm 119:37

Corinthians 10:5

It is the many smaller journeys, within this bigger journey called Life, that make us up to be who we are? The Perspectives, the visions, the way we take actions from what we see, to inmplement them in our own way, this not only forms who we become, but what we tend to forget is, it forms many others around us, whether in a negative way, or a positive way.

We are all within this broken society today simply because, we in one way shape or form, have failed each other with our own actions. We have lost sight of one of the biggest conmandments that Moses, brought forth to each of us, from our Father, and the creator of all the beauty around us, ” Love Thy Neighbor”. We do not even know our neighbors anymore, let alone a simple hello in passing, we all move around like we are the creator’s? Like we own everything around us, and are entitled to everything around us? Yes God created all this for us to enjoy, but to enjoy with each other in harmony, without trying to attack and kill each other. Until the day comes that we all get back to who we truly are, we may never get back to a good and healthy society, it all starts with the actions of each one of us, as we move forward within our own journeys, of this journey thru life.

This journey through life has much beauty for us all to see, but when we keep the current actions we are taking, all this beauty will turn to ugliness all around us. Now I get the fact that each society throughout this journey will grow from one to another, but when they do grow and when they are taught the wrong things, from the wrong actions, this is where we have gone so wrong. Plus the fact that we of this society are so far removed from the time when, Jesus Christ came to us and walked this journey with us, has led us away from the house of God, and so far away that, there are some who just do not believe, or have formed their own Idealologies about the son of man. Well!!! Unlike the so-called media of today, I have a real news-flash for you, without the belief in Jesus Christ, you can not have any faith, which then leads to no hope.

Faith in anything is key to us walking our paths confidently, to be better and stronger. With faith in our selves, we then can keep moving forward, without stepping backwards into the unknown, and with that faith, we than can have great hope, that helps us to not just be who we are, but succeed in everything we set out to do, as we walk our paths of this journey. Now some in this society who have no faith in anything, will try to bring their inabilities to the rest of us? Then say that, you need to do as I say, because it is the only way? Some and because of their inabilities, will try to wreak all the power over us, so they can seem ( only to themselves), as the most powerful over all others. Then you have the ones that, just simply go with the flow, as to not bring any unwanted pain and hurt, let alone anything that takes away their comfort. People today fear so much of all ugliness and hatred out there, that they forget how to actually take a stand to it, how to look the fear in the eyes, so they can end that fear around them, so they keep to the status Quo, cause they fear more of the actions that may come to them.

We need to change our actions we take toward each other, we attack each other at every turn, this is not what Jesus taught us within his journey here, some will be Politically correct to your face, then stab you in the back when you turn from them? These actions only promote more ugliness and hatred, we need to get back to ” Love Thy Neighbor”, so we then can get back to, our true feelings and emotions, show more love and empathy of each other, then we can actually take the right steps moving forward, of how to make not only this society better and stronger, but make ourselves better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

With each little journey within this bigger journey, there is so much beauty around us, there is so much to truly see of what God created for us, the only way to truly see it is, we need to step out of our comfort zones, step out of our in actions, and get back to our true actions, get back to who we truly are, get back into the house of God, so we can truly feel the blood of Jesus Christ warm our hearts and flow freely within our bodies. When the blood of Jesus flows within us, we then will have the empathy of one another, so we than can get away from the ugliness and hatred, as we move forward within the proper changes, for us all to be better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, within the peace and joy, that Jesus showed us as he walked this journey with us.

” The many journeys within this bigger journey, are what shapes us into who we truly are”

” Change is all around us throughout this journey, it is how we accept and adapt to the change, that shapes us into who we are”

Victory over Sin

” In all these things we are more than Conquerors through him who loved us”

Romans 8:37

” Resist the Devil and he will flee from you, draw near to God and he will draw near to you”

James 4:7-8

Thought of the day:

When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he taught us how to be conquerors so the victory can be ours. When the blood of Jesus flows freely through our hearts, this draws us nearer to God to enjoy his protection, and we no longer need to fear the enemy.

Just as the day time sky gives way to the night sky, the good gives way to evil. The daytime may give way to the darkness for a short time, the evil can be the same, only sometimes we let it linger longer than it needs to. When we give into the temptation of Satan, the evil will then seem so strong, we get lost within the darkness. Sometimes we get caught up in the darkness around us, and with so much of it, we try to avoid it by hiding deep within ourselves. We forget that through the darkness there will always be the light of goodness. But as we hide within, we lose sight of where we are going and become lost as we walk through this journey of life.

True at times the darkness will seem stronger then anything we have seen, but the reality is, we forget that the goodness will always conquor the evil and the light will return to us all. While the darkness consumes us, sometimes other forces come into play, these forces will try to control every fiber of our being, and they will if we do nothing and let them, which is why we must never lose the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, so we all can have the hope, that we will get through the darkness, to once again be within the light of the good moving forward along this journey.

We all have this inner child within us, this child also needs to grow in a healthy way, just as we on the outside. When this inner child gets neglected, its kind of like a young child gets neglected within society, they do not grow properly, which then leads to a lot of issues later in life. When we become so troubled, we then put up these walls and let no one inside of the walls, even if that one is there to help? Once these walls go up, then we will never see any light, as the darkness goes wherever we go? This will make us all ripe for the pickings of Satan and all evil to control everything about us. The pain of this darkness becomes so painful, we will then do anything to rid ourselves from it, which means we will bury our true selves, then portray this fake self to all those around us, and as we portray this fake self, we then bury our true feelings and emotions very deep within, so that the blood of Jesus will not flow through our hearts, turning it so cold, that we feel nothing for anyone or anything around us.

Just as Jesus resisted the temptation of Satan, we to can resist the temptation as well. We need to stay strong to who we are, never bury our feeling and emotions, and always look all fear in the eyes, so that fear then melts away from us. When we put up these walls we will never face any fear head on, we will always take the easy way out and become someone we truly are not. There is no fear that is stronger then any of us, we only make it look strong as we give into it and let it totally control who we are. This includes the power of Addiction, yes an addiction is very powerful, but when we let it control us and not stand up to it, then like fear it will conquor us and take us deeper into the darkness, with zero light anywhere in front of us.

Sometimes we need to change what we are doing, in order to get to who we truly are, and for some that may seem harder then walking through a brick wall, but in a lot of ways, we are walking through that brick wall, as we have put up the wall to begin with. True there will be much pain to fix what we need in order to get to who we are, but that pain is nothing to the pain of not being of who we are, just that we have numbed ourselves so much from the pain, we do not feel it anymore. We feel nothing from anything, when we try to move forward without our true feelings and emotions, but there is no better feeling in the world, when we are true to ourselves, have complete faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, which then gives us hope to be whatever we want along this journey. When we resist the temptation of Satan, then Jesus will always be with us and guide to the path of righteousness, his blood will warm our hearts as it flows freely within us, his love will always be within us, so we can share that love with each other, and yes it is also okay to cry, as the tears are what heals us from our pain moving forward, just like mother nature rains on the earth, washing away the dirt and bringing out the flowers of life.

We may walk our own paths through this journey of life, but the journey is the same for each of us. We grow and heal in our own ways, but when we resist the temptation of Satan, Jesus will always be by our side as we walk our paths, its the faith that shows us that and brings us all the hope we need moving forward. The darkness does not have to be around long, which will give us all true light throughout this journey, as we see clearly of where we are going, with no obstructions to slow or stop us, and we move forward in the peace of Christ, with joy at every turn.

” The day sky gives way to the night sky, just as the darkness looms over us, the true light will always be around the next corner”

” We only fear the enemy because we let temptation control us and move further away from the power of Jesus Christ”

Happy Birthday to the Catholic Church

” Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed”

Romans 12:2

” I have set before you life and death****therefore choose life”

Deuteronomy 30:19

Thought of the day:

As the first church was created, the world was upside down. the imprisonments, deaths and ugliness were overwhelming, Jesus Christ hoped to change our world? but how can we really change when, we are deeply afraid to take a stand or even, to stand out?

There are many bridges and cross roads throughout this journey of life, the thing is, the bridges break down over time, the cross roads with so much traffic, become riddled with ruts and grooves, that can get us all twisted and bruised. We all want everything handed to us today, nobody wants to work for anything anymore, which makes for the bridges not being attended to, or the cross roads not being groomed as well. Back about 2,000 years ago as the Catholic Church was created, that society back then was just as bad as this society today, the big difference is, the technology we have today. Now with technology, it was suppose to make life easier for us all? but in a lot of ways it has complicated life in so many ways, and in ways we truly do not understand.

We the people are what’s wrong in this society and we the people can fix it moving forward. In a lot of ways we all think we are better and smarter than each other, which leads to much head butting, and we as a society not coming together in unity. For instance, when something gets invented you go through a series of experiments, you go through multiple think tanks with many others, you just can’t invent something thinking this is the change all, without getting out all the bugs and issues. Nothing is perfect, not even we the people, as much as some may think they are?

When Jesus came to us and walked this journey through life with us, he taught us many things, he showed us of how not to just be a fishermen, but to be a Fisher of Men. he showed us how to treat each other with respect, so we than can show our love and empathy to each other. He protected us from the evil, while showing us how to resist temptation, as he himself resisted the temptation from Satan. We in this society and because many of us have forgotten what the inside of the house of God looks like, and in many ways given into the temptation of evil and Satan, we have buried our true feelings of love and empathy, as to try to protect ourselves from all evils, which does nothing except, makes our hearts go cold, and stops the heart from letting the blood of Jesus Christ flow freely throughout our bodies. We of this society today, think very strongly that, we know more than all others, which because of this mindset, has lead all into the path and destruction that Satan wants, as we all have gone in the other direction of what Jesus wants for us all.

Change is good, change can be difficult and bring much pain, but if we do not adapt to the change, then we as a society will never see the light at the end, as we all stay within the darkness of Satan and all it’s ugliness it brings. Satan wants us all to be hateful of each other, as this is what divides us moving forward, hate is a learned thing and we have learned it from somewhere? We need to find where we learned it, so we can unlearn it and get back to true love. Everything around us will change constantly, even we ourselves will go through many changes as we walk our paths, we will go through many changes throughout this journey, but if we never adapt to the change, then we will never fully walk any path we choose, along this journey of life.

The Catholic Church was created to give us a place to worship, a place to go listen to the words of God, so we can implement them within our lives? But as time passes and we change and in some ways for the worse, then everything around us becomes diluted with we not being true to ourselves or even true to Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church is a place we go to keep the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so when there is faith, there will always be hope moving forward. When we keep the faith in Jesus and ourselves, no matter what this journey may throw at us, we will always walk our paths with confidence, as we never lose site of the light from the path of righteousness, which keeps those dark days to a minimum, like the night giving way to the daytime.

The Catholic church is no different than anything else along this journey, it has gone through many changes from when it was created, which is what makes it successible like we ourselves, to the changes of life. The church in a lot of ways has given into the temptations of Satan, with all the power, control and greed, which has had it lose sight of the true words of Jesus Christ and then interpreting them to you and I as they see fit. Yes they have had some scandels in the past, and some of these scandels has led us away from the church, maybe if these scandels were handled better and in a way like Jesus handled the temptations from Satan, then our faith would be alot better, leaving us with better hope moving forward.

Sometimes through change things become frazzled and out of focus, when this happens, sometimes it is best to go back to basics, to move forward even stronger. Some in this society want to take away all the history, to give you nothing to glance back at, so you can fix what you need to fix, they want you to become so dependent on them, that you then do not walk a path through this journey for yourself anymore, and now you have become the sheep within the herd, for the small majority of shepards in this world. When we all come together in unity, when we all get back to truly being of who we are, when we all get back to the faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, this is how we get back to truly feeling the love and empathy within us, as the hate and the ugliness find they can not affect us anymore, when we then as Jesus did many times, resist the temptations of evil, so we all then can see the true hope in front of us, as we walk our paths in peace, and find much joy throughout this journey of life.

” The Philosophy of life is really very simple, just that we the people have twisted in so many ways that we have become out of focus from it”

” The bridge over troubles waters have become frazzled and in need of a fixing to keep all moving forward without falling to the peril below”

The greatest security is the home within Heaven

” Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the son of man has no place to lay his head”

Matthew 8:20

” He who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty”

Psalms 91:1

Thought of the day:

Security is a big deal, it’s why we seek committed relationships, or high paying jobs. That’s also why it’s devastating when spouses leave and jobs are eliminated. Christ is the only true source of security, he will never leave you, or forsake you.

This journey through life we all walk a path within, is very much the same journey that Jesus Christ walked, when he came to us all. I get the fact that some will not truly believe in the son of man, they think it is just a myth, only because we are so far removed from this time, and the fact we of this time haven’t physically seen him, just we can not find the faith to truly believe. Very true that many of us have totally forgotten of what it looks like in the house of God, but you really do not have to walk in through the doors, simply because, if you have the true faith in Jesus Christ, he then lives within you, he gives you the faith in yourself, so you can achieve anything you set out to do. These days we live our lives on the exterior, but when that exterior is taken from us, like our jobs, or relationships, then we become extremely insecure in all we do, we lose faith in moving forward along our paths, then simply wander aimlessly throughout this journey.

Now with all the technology out there, yes there will be many security breaches, but when you truly believe in the faith of Jesus Christ, truly feel his love within your heart, there is nothing or anybody that can breach that security from you. I get the fact that we all want that someone special at our side, but with all the change that happens around us, with the way we change in our own ways, the only real security we can have is, with we ourselves, as we have total faith in ourselves like we do in Jesus. Is there really a such thing as a dream job? Within the way things change around us, there is no set dream job, job security is a thing of the past, as all the companies go through their changes, with these changing times. Each company has an image to portray, and if you do not portray that image, then its not worth your time to pursue that company, no matter how bad you want that job. Sometimes a job you think is not that glorious, ends up being just as glorious as the job that rejected you for an image.

We all in a way, within this society have become so fake, we will put forth a form of fake self toward others in order to try to be excepted by them, but at what cost does this practice really take? Because when we can’t even except ourselves for who we truly are, then how can all others truly except us as well? If we only put the effort in that we do for portraying our fake selves, just imagine how perfect this world would be, if we all put in the same effort, to be who we truly are? Just maybe this world would have more peace, happiness and love within it, as we walk through this journey.

This journey from beginning to end is all the same for each of us, just like we are all equal to each other, but just like we are unique to each other, this journey is unique as well, with the many paths within it for us all to choose from. Now as we choose which path we want to walk, when we do so with the total faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, there will never be a wrong path, but when the faith is not there, then neither is the hope as we try to move forward within this journey. With no faith and no hope, we will never be secure in what we do, without any security as we walk our paths, this is where all the chaos and the ugliness will come to us, the problem then is, we will never see clearly along our paths, as the clouds from the chaos, become so dark, we will see no light anywhere on the path.

This society is so screwed up, that we think if we have all the money, then all our issues will go away? Money may buy all your material things, which gives you the fake feeling of security, but take away all the material things, take away all the money, and let’s see just how happy you can be? Within the true faith in yourself and in Jesus Christ, this is all the happiness you truly need, as now you can be truly of who you are, without making a conceded effort, to keep this fake self going. Being fake only breeds all insecurities, and when we put forth this fake self, not only are we not being true to one another, now we can not trust one another, which then leads into the lack of respect as well. All the ingredients we are all seeing around us now, the way we change this is, we all have to start being true to ourselves, start being true to who we are, then all the security we need, will be back within us. The security of knowing Jesus Christ is within us, the security that the faith in ourselves and in Jesus, is warming our hearts, so his blood can flow freely within us, which then gives us hope in all we do. With this kind of security, then we all can walk our paths in peace and joy, throughout this journey of life.

” We may leave our homes and our material things behind as this journey ends, but our true homes are within heaven with our faith in Jesus Christ”

” Without any security then we walk aimlessly through this journey, when we feel secure now we walk with a purpose”

Having Faith and truly Believing

Digital Camera

” And the Angel said to her in reply, the Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the most high will overshadow you, therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the son of God”

” For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Christ and Lord”

Within this society of today, do we truly have faith? I mean not just to have the faith to leave for work and return home later, but do we truly have the faith that everything happens for a reason, and yes we can over come whatever that may cross our paths, and when we do, then there will always be hope for us all, as we walk this journey of life. Belief…. this is something we do totally within our hearts, it is not just a word that is thrown out there, just to make like we understand something, when you truly believe 100% with your heart, there is no copy, or there is no faking the belief, because when you truly believe, not only will the faith be there, but there will always be hope as we move forward along our paths, of this journey through life.

True without faith there is no hope, also true that with no belief, there will be no faith or hope, which then leaves us all empty as we walk our paths of this journey through life. There are so many factors throughout this journey, true it can get overwhelming at times, we can lose our way and become lost, as then we are just wandering and not walking as we should. When we truly believe in something, we will always have the faith in that something, which then gives us great hope moving forward along our paths,

Jesus Christ is a great example of true belief, cause when we have complete faith within our hearts and souls for Jesus Christ, then not only can we feel his love within us, but he will help strengthen our faith in him, as he brings us great hope moving forward. True some may say we never see him, but when you truly believe in Jesus Christ, then we shall see the signs he leaves us, as we then discover the faith in not just ourselves, but the faith in Jesus Christ as well, which then leads us to great hope moving forward, which then helps this journey seem not as tough as we sometimes make it out to be. We may never see Jesus among us, but the signs he sends us to see, are all around us, which is why we always need to look deeply at what we see, because when we do not, this is when we will never see the signs, which then leads to zero belief, followed by no faith and the hope will never come to us throughout this journey.

This time of the year, the time of Christmas, is truly the most magical time and the most precious time as well. It is the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, it brings forth the belief in him, so we can truly feel his love within our hearts and souls, then with the belief the faith will then come, and not just in him, but in ourselves as well, while we truly see the signs that Jesus brings to each of us, then as our faith becomes stronger, then the hope we will find right in front of us, leading us into the path of righteousness. Even through the darkest of times, when we find that path of righteousness, the light of Jesus Christ will always light our way, throughout this journey of life. Jesus Christ is always there, he is always within us no matter what, it is us who lose the belief, which gives us no faith, to see no hope as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

” Merry Christmas to all and to all may you totally have the belief in Jesus Christ, which leads you to the faith in yourself and him, while the hope is in front of you”

” Jesus Christ is within us all, which is why we need to look deeply into what we see all the time throughout this journey”

” The three factors in life that we all need to be conscious of always, belief, faith, and hope”
